It is said the age of colonialism is over, the time when large aggressive countries grabbed, conquered and suppressed smaller countries and territories and wiped out their indigenous cultures. But today the process continues. Onet case is Tibet where the Chinese continue to suppress and destroy Tibetan culture.

Most Americans don't realize that we have our own 'Tibets'. Hawaii is one. The Hawaiian Islands were graciously removed from the control of the Hawaiian monarchy in 1898, and Hawaii's last queen Liliuokalani was imprisoned in one room of her palace for eight months.

But America and China are not alone. Japan has its 'Tibet', the Ryukyus (Okinawa and surrounding islands). France's 'Tibet' is Tahiti and surrounding South Pacific islands.
